I didn't know where to put this so I figured I'd start a thread to follow updates on Connors status and career going forward. 

In this article they talk about why Fields has not had surgery yet and why he is playing right now. 




Connor Fields Update

After Monday's Musings column came out, Peter Fields reached out to clear up the confusion about his son's knee. So here's the deal. Connor Fields played through the Albany Great Danes season knowing that he would need surgery for his torn ACL at some point. The plan was to have it done a couple of weeks ago, right after the NCAA tournament ended, so that Fields could get into rehab and be ready for the NLL.

When he went to visit the doctor, Fields learned that because he had a cortisone injection in the knee in May, he would have to wait three months before having the surgery to avoid the risk of infection. That means an August 1 surgery date, which in turn allows for Fields to play in Major League Lacrosse with the Charlotte Hounds. Hence the announcement that caught so many of us by surprise that Fields had been cleared to play and was activated by the Hounds.

While he is hitting the outdoor fields with Charlotte, Fields will not be returning to Oakville this summer to play for the Rock. The pressure on the knee of the cutting on turf required by box lacrosse is just too much to put on the knee before the surgery. Fields did, however, say that his doctor told him that he expects his rehab to be closer to four months than six, which would allow him to be ready either for the beginning of NLL team training camps this November/December or shortly thereafter.
